SK to implement Dakota language courses for secondary students

The Government of Saskatchewan has announced that it will be adding Dakota language courses to its secondary school curriculum. The SK Ministry of Education will develop curriculum for Dakota 10, 20, and 30 in collaboration with Dakota Nations over the course of this academic year with the intent of implementing the curriculum in the 2023-24 school year. “The Wahpeton Dakota Nation is pleased to have the opportunity to work with the Ministry of Education in the development of a Dakota language curriculum,” said Chief John Waditaka. “The new curriculum will support the revitalization of the Dakota Language, will provide an authentic Dakota Oyate worldview for the greater provincial student population and will open the doors for further authentic research of the Northern Dakota Peoples.”
